The jacket of Courrèges takes all the characteristics of the traditional tunic: ample shape, wide hood, tightening tie on the bottom, large zipped side pockets and bellows of comfort at the neck to make the gesture of passage of the passage faster and ease.
Functional and traditional clothing of the navy, formerly made with the sails of the boats, the jacket of Courrèges was first selected because it creates the surprise and the break in the history of the house. With this remarkable piece, Courrèges abandons technical materials, especially plastics, to serve the pure functionality in a material on the contrary 100% natural: cotton. The thick, extremely tight fabric provides this jacket with optimum protection against the wind.
Courrèges however wanted to go further and partially protect it against the rain, creating itself a particularly modern hybridization and thus adding a missing functionality to the room: the ventral and dorsal pockets make it possible to deploy strips of parachute fabrics striped and waterproof which, when assembled on the sides thanks to a system of pressures, transform the bottom into the tunic in waterproof clothing. In addition, the addition of the colors worked in band, inscribe this purely functional piece in its design in an iconic fashion piece of its time: colorful, flexible, unisex, designed to last in time.
